Emily Middlemas is BACK on The X Factor and she's even better than before.

"I auditioned for X Factor two years ago and I was 15 years old so I was very young," says the now 17-year-old from Glasgow.

Despite being only 15, Emily made it all the way to judges' houses in Cheryl's category but was sent home and told she was "not ready" by the former judge.

Emily recalls: "At the time I was devastated but I got to know it was okay and I was a little bit too young."

Now back for a second shot, she adds: "If I didn't get through the first audition today I'd be absolutely heartbroken, I'm just really, really hoping for the best."

"I went away, I've been rehearsing, practising and I'm ready for this," the talented teenager confidently declares ahead of her audition on the show tonight.

After a perfect cover of Stevie Wonder's Master Blaster, Emily leaves Nicole Scherzinger VERY impressed.

She says: "I didn't get to meet you two years go because Simon wouldn't have me back, but I'm enchanted by you, you mesmerise me, you're a little find."

But what will the other judges make of Emily's comeback?

The X Factor 2016 auditions continue Sunday at 8PM on ITV and don't forget to catch the Xtra Factor LIVE at 9:30PM tonight on ITV2 with Rylan Clark-Neal and Matt Edmondson.
